In brief: Biopsy/histoath.

The diagnosis of this cancer is often made by lymph node biopsy, since the nasopharyngeal cancer ofthen presents with lymph node involvement.
Otherwise, the patient will typically undergo a needle biopsy of this lesion, and when histopathologic information is available, a multidisciplinary discussion of the optimal treatment strategy will be undertaken.
